Storyline

At a skid row mission, a cleric opines as men wait to eat. After his sermon, he brings out a pie and cuts it into small slices. The two men at the end of the line get none. They leave the mission and head for a garbage dump where junk becomes props for their play. A dress form becomes Mae West; a rusted car gives them a wild ride. Then, one dresses as a priest and promises pie in the sky. By the end, they sport metal halos. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Wow...who would have predicted greatness from any of the folks in this film.
11 October 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film is interesting because it stars Elia Kazan. Kazan acted for some time before becoming a world-famous director of such films as "On the Waterfront". Here, he's acting in an experimental film made by some theater group. Unfortunately, the film itself is pretty awful--and amazingly amateurish considering its made by folks studying to be professional actors. To me, it comes off very poorly and you'd never suspect that any of these folks would go on to have great careers--at least in film! The short features bad music, some VERY goofy camera work (with VERY close up shots that just look like they're done by someone who's never used a camera) and, at times, it seems a bit pointless. The point, if there is one, seems to be rather anti-clerical--and I could sure see this offending many folks when it debuted, though I doubt if very many people actually got around to seeing this...those lucky fools!
